you can't shed light on anything if you're too busy casting a shadow.

fave quotes:

Appreciate yourself. The next time someone pays you a compliment, don't shrug it off or put yourself down. When we push away acknowledgment of our divine selves, we can't amplify the good that is trying to move through our lives. We can be humble and still accept praise. Accept that others are seeing the God within you. Take pleasure that others recognize your true identity. And give the gift of a compliment to someone else. *~Mary Manin Morrissey *

"Your playing small does not serve the world. Who are you not to be great." ...Nelson Mandela, inaugural speech

The Zen master Ling Chi said that the miracle is not to walk on burning charcoal or in the thin air or on the water; the miracle is just to walk on earth. You breathe in. You become aware of the fact that you are alive. You are still alive and you are walking on this beautiful
planet..The greatest of all miracles is to be alive. ~Thich Nhat Hanh

THE World is too much with us; late and soon,
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers:
Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
This Sea that bares her bosom to the moon,
The winds that will be howling at all hours
And are up-gather'd now like sleeping flowers,
For this, for everything, we are out of tune;
It moves us not.�Great God! I'd rather be
A pagan suckled in a creed outworn,�
So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;
Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea;
Or hear old Triton blow his wreathèd horn.
~William Wordsworth~

"What is a curiosa?" I asked. She regarded me cheerfully and explained that curiosas were witches who were no longer concerned with the obvious aspects of sorcery: symbolic paraphenalia, rituals, and incantations. "Curiosas," she whispered, "are beings preoccupied with things of the eternal. They are like spiders, spinning fine, invisible threads between the known and the unknown.
The Witch's Dream: Florinda Donner-Grau

Will you teach your children what we have taught our children?
That the earth is our mother? That what befalls the earth befalls
all the sons of the earth. This we know:the earth does not belong to
man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood
that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a
strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.
~Chief Seattle

Some of the chemicals and atoms of your body are the same that make up your desk, your chair, the trees, rocks, this planet and the nebula outside. They are the same that burn inside the stars themselves. We are starstuff, we are the universe made manifest, trying to figure itself out. Sometimes the universe requires a change of perspective.

The Indian’s symbol is the circle, the hoop.
Nature wants things to be round
The bodies of human beings and animals have no corners
With us the circle stands for the togetherness
Of people who sit with one another
Around the campfire,
Relatives and friends united in peace
While the pipe passes from hand to hand.
The camp in which every tipi had its place
Was also in a ring.
The tipi was a ring in which people sat in a circle
And all the families in the village
Were in turn circles
Within a larger circle
Part of the larger hoop
Which was the seven campfires of the Sioux,
Representing one nation.
The nation was only part of the universe,
In itself circular and made of the earth,
which is round,
of the sun which is round
of the stars which are round.
The moon, the horizon, the rainbow –
Circles within circles,
With no beginning and no end.
